The 2017-2020 Kearney Public Library Strategic Plan was accepted by the Kearney Public Library Advisory Board on September 12, 2017. This plan validates the mission of the library. All aspects of the library’s operation received careful consideration. Particularly helpful in shaping this plan was a survey that focused on the Kearney Public Library with 334 respondents weighing in on the current state of the library and how to improve services. Also helpful were the Kearney Comprehensive Plan and the Downtown Kearney Plan.
Four major goals are presented in the plan covering events and speakers, materials collected, aiding the public in job preparation, and providing meeting and class space.
The strategic plan, including goals and objectives and a summary of the survey findings is available on the Kearney Public Library web page at www.kearneylib.org.
